WASHINGTON, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dog Tag Inc. (DTI) announced today a $75,000 matching donation from Craig Newmark Philanthropies. This generous philanthropic investment will multiply the impact of donations made during the month of December and advance Dog Tag's mission to empower veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses, and caregivers to find renewed purpose and community after serving our nation.

"We're deeply grateful for Craig's longtime support of our work," said Meghan Ogilvie, CEO, Dog Tag Inc. "Veterans, military spouses, and caregivers are facing exacerbated challenges around employment, isolation from their community, and mental health due to COVID-19. Demand for our program has never been greater and the need for our innovative programming will only grow as we continue to come to terms with COVID's short and long-term impacts. This matching gift will help us leverage the generosity of our community to ensure we can deliver our life-changing program to even more veterans, military spouses, and caregivers in 2021 and beyond."

"Dog Tag provides veterans, military spouses, and caregivers with education, training, and support so they can find a new sense of purpose, community, and success outside the military," said Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies. "All Americans need to support veterans and military families, and I'm very proud to help people do so by making their money go even further."

The December Match Campaign kicks off on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 - #GivingTuesday. All donations made on #GivingTuesday will be tripled and donations made between December 2 - 31, 2020 will be doubled, up to $75,000. To make a contribution that is eligible for the December Match, click here.

ABOUT DOG TAG INC.

Dog Tag empowers our veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses, and caregivers to find renewed purpose and community through an unexpected combination of a bakery and a classroom. Dog Tag's innovative approach consists of a five-month fellowship program that combines equal parts classroom, bakery, community, and wellbeing. Dog Tag Fellows earn a certificate of business administration in our classroom space; bring their coursework to life by learning the ins and outs of running a successful business in the bakery; build community with each other; and enhance their wellbeing by committing time to introspection and personal growth. Since 2014, Dog Tag has served 148 veterans, military spouses, and caregivers.
